My kitty Fluff has discharge from one nostril only - Right now it is a yellow-brownish color.<br><br><br><br>
I took her to the vet about a week ago and she had blood work etc done (dang was that expensive - but only the best for my queen!). She was kind of lethargic and she also had some discharge from her eyes. (although, she has always had problems with her one eye with discharge).<br><br><br><br>
She gave me liquid antibiotics for two x's a day for one week. Fluff looked really good on Wednesday - no discharge or anything. I tried to call the doctor with an update and of course, no one got back to me (I don't think the receptionist took the message right). I was hoping that it was cleared up.<br><br><br><br>
Now, she is having the discharge again.<br><br><br><br>
She is a lot more chipper, her eyes look a lot better and she is eating (she didn't stop before) but I don't see her drinking water from the bowls (she wasn't before either - unless she sneaking it in when I don't see). (I know she goes in the shower after I take one). She sneezes every once and a while and cleans her nose off.<br><br><br><br>
I am waiting for the vet to call me back again...(they have an emergency service so they are open on sundays).<br><br><br><br>
I am thinking since she seemed to be responding to the antibiotics the first that maybe she just needs a longer course (maybe a week wasn't enough?) and it isn't anything serious.<br><br><br><br>
I keeping reading online about nose tumors...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> No No No!<br><br><br><br>
My other two cats are fine. They both sneezed a few times off and on this week. They are all indoor kitties. Fluff is 11 years old.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone else have a pet with discharge from one nose?<br><br><br><br>

thanks all!<br><br><br><br>
Vet finally called me back. Fluff will probably just need more antibiotics. ...although, her nose looks better today..still running though.<br><br><br><br>
She is very chipper today....She will be mad at me later when we start the antibiotics again..I have to chase her fancy butt around the apartment to get hold of her. She knows when it is coming too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Have her tested for upper respiratory infections. This is done through blood work, but also through a culture swab (taken from inside the eyelid). Cats with runny noses and eyes are often sufferers of chronic respiratory infections. Do a google search for more info.<br><br><br><br>
I'd say that you should insolate her from the other cats, but I guess it's too late for that if they are sneezing.

Thanks!<br><br><br><br>
The other cats only sneezed once or twice and they are looking good. I already had her tested for everything. So, it isn't an upper respiratory. Her eyes are good now..It is just the nostril and even that doesn't always look that bad. She rarely sneezes too.<br><br><br><br>
She is going to have antibiotics for the next two weeks.
